Assessment Day Saturday, February 15th 2020
Welcome to the 2020 Spring Rec Soccer Season. We are excited to have your son/daughter playing with us this year! First and foremost we would like to thank all the parents who volunteer to coach, without parent coaches our children would not have a program in which to participate, so THANK YOU!
We have made changes to our Academy program in hopes of creating an environment where your child can learn and grow by playing with players of similar size and skill level. In an effort to better our evolving program, GCAA staff decided to make a U05-U06 division where players were placed on teams and played games on Saturdays. The positive feedback from this means we will continue to do the same going forward with the U05-U06 division. The U07-U08 division will remain the same with Saturday games and it has been determined that we must ALWAYS have 2 tiers in the U7/U8 division due to the age range and wide range of skill. GCAA Rec Soccer committee has decided this fall that ONLY U7/U8 players need to attend Assessment Day.
Assessments are designed to help the GCAA staff determine the tier the players needs to be in and make teams as fair as possible. Players will be placed on a team based on size and skill through a series of stations
1. Speed and Agility
3. 1v1 & 2v2 square
4. Short Scrimmage - 4v4
Assessments will be held Saturday, February 15th 2020 at the U15 field at the GCAA Complex. If you cannot make the Assessment, then your child's placement will be based on the answers you give during the registation process.
We hope the U07-U08 age group being based more on developmental/competitive ability will make for a more enjoyable soccer experience. Please be patient with us in this transition process and if you have any questions please feel free to inquire at email@example.com and we will do our best to address your concerns.
